The New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) serves as a model for programming, audience diversity, education initiatives, and as a catalyst in returning nightlife and economic activity to its hometown of Newark, New Jersey. Proposed by former New Jersey Governor Thomas H. Kean in 1986, NJPAC raised its curtain on October 18, 1997, making it one of the top ten largest performing arts centers in the United States.
NJPAC is a world-class and community-based cultural venue, showcasing the best artists of national and international acclaim as well as top artists from the State of New Jersey. Since its grand opening, NJPAC has attracted over 6 million patrons (including more than 1 million children), and welcomed renowned artists, cultural icons, two presidents, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and some of the world’s most cherished orchestral, dance, theater, and instrumental works.
